I am obsessed with Dollar Tree’s glass vases and candleholders. Between the price and the quality, they’re really hard to top! I love them because you can use them “as is” to fill with flowers and candles for a classic look, or you can transform them in so many creative ways. My favorite transformation is painting them… and with this easy hack I’m sharing, you don’t have to be an artist to give them a gorgeous new look. Use painter’s tape and spray paint to create stripes and geometrical designs for extra flair. So simple! Check out the painted candleholders and vases I made recently and customize your own to fit your theme and color scheme.
Stock Up on Supplies:
- Spray Paint (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)
- Painter’s Tape
- Scrap Newspaper
Get Started on Your “Vase” Lift:
- Start by wrapping painter’s tape around each vase and candleholder, keeping in mind that the taped areas will not be painted.
- Wrap the tape in rows to create stripes or create patterns by cutting and angling the tape. You can make chevron, polka dots, and more!
- Lay out the scrap newspaper and spray paint away. Just be sure to take your time so you don’t miss any areas, but don’t worry, the painter’s tape will help with this part.
- Let them dry completely for at least an hour or even over night. I know you’ll be excited, but the more dry the better here.
- Carefully remove the tape from all your vases and candleholders to reveal your stripes and patterns.
- Fill with all your favorite things and display them proudly!
